NEWS! - Aircraft Update - Tensor 600X v3.1 - VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot' header.jpg


The vSkyLabs Tensor 600X German two-seat tandem configuration autogyro prototype has been updated to v3.1. By all accounts this a very small update as there are only three items listed (X-Plane 12 conversion was done in April last year). But the changes are interesting and you gain some significant features. First is the 3D HUD visualization, or the instruments are now reflected in the screen in front of you. Secondly is the additional 'Test-Pilot' instruments cluster, that can can be turned off by disabling the said cluster. The third item is a nice graphic cleanup.


Version 3.1(January 8th 2024)
  • 3-d HUD visualization was implemented:
  • Part of the additional 'Test-Pilot' instruments cluster (can be turned off by disabling the cluster).
  • Minor graphics refinements.


The VSKYLABS Tensor 600X is a high definition autogyro simulation of the Tensor 600X, based on development information which was provided by ‘TENSOR AG.’. However, not all of the information, specifications and data, system descriptions and flight instructions in this manual are necessarily representing the real Tensor 600X specs and data, and should not be considered as official information with regards to the Tensor 600X. The real Tensor 600X is still under development and its complete specification and performance figures will be available once ‘TENSOR AG.’ will release it in public.






This being a vSkyLabs aircraft, Then the vSkylab philosophy is that you are purchasing an ongoing project, so any aircraft you purchase is not fully completed or is usually not completed to 100%, that is the deal you sign up for to get access to the aircraft, and all the development is free and ongoing throughout the X-Plane 12 version. These projects are under constant development: the development road-map is including flight model refinements, enhanced systems depth, additional liveries and other improvements. So this aircraft is noted as an "Early Access" project.


Project Main Features:
  • Flight Model tuned to X-Plane 12
  • New Rotax 915iS engine
  • G1000 autopilot is now inverter-dependent, with a safe mechanism for gound operations.
  • New interior lighting systems for the instrument gauges.
  • Added option to hide the front stick (similar to 'hide-yoke').
  • Extensive PBR update to fall in line with the latest XP12 lighting engine updates.
  • Pusher prop visualization update.
  • Liveries update.
  • Additional 2 liveries.
  • Enhanced windshields.
  • New FMOD 2.0 sounds pack.
  • VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot' Project of a real world prototype
  • Autoupdater included
  • The project is under constant development.
